Introduction to Sleeping your baby Safely

Product Safety

Current Information Sessions

Your baby will spend a lot of their time sleeping.  Knowing how and why to sleep your baby safely is so important.

 

Soteria Safe Sleeping Advice believes all children have the right to a safe sleeping environment.

However, we realise not all families have access to safe sleeping information because of many barriers – distance, finance, personal circumstance – which is why, in partnership with River’s Gift, a charity committed to funding research into Sudden Infant Death Syndrome (SIDS) and safe sleep education, we have developed a series of webinars focussing on ensuring the latest evidence-based information is delivered to all caregivers. 

Whether you are a parent, grandparent, babysitter, childcare educator or anyone caring for a baby, this series of webinars has a wealth of information to help you understand Safe Sleeping and what is a safe product; what is safe practice; what is a safe sleep place.

To gain the most from our these topic sessions, we strongly recommend you complete our free Introductory Session so you understand the principles of Safe Sleeping

Myths & Marketing - $15

Sleep bags, wraps  or swaddles? - $15

With the excitement of having a new baby or one on the way, you may be bombarded with lots of advice – from delighted grandparents, friends, even strangers – all well-meaning but not necessarily well-informed.

Join us to understand the facts and why safe sleeping recommendations are so important.

Since the introduction of the Safe Sleeping health promotion three decades ago, a lot has changed – years of research has identified that eliminating certain risk factors can reduce infant sleep accidents and death.  It has also highlighted that claims made by manufacturers are not always accurate so it can be difficult to know what is true, or just clever marketing.

Keeping your baby safe is what every parent’s wants, so let us show you what is hype and what is evidence-based fact.
